四季の五箇山 雪あかり

The Seasons of Gokayama: Snow Illumination

Date:Early February (from sunset to 8:00 PM)
Address/The World Heritage Suganuma Gasshozukuri Village

When the sun sets on the snow covered Gokayama gassho-zukuri village, 50 lights are used to illuminate the village and create a marvelous view of the gassho-zukuri houses rising out of the snow. Using that view as a background, various performances of folk songs and dances from Gokayama like the Kokiriko and the Toichinsa are held. The event is the perfect chance for international visitors to view authentic Japanese scenery.
